Kate Middleton is the wife of Prince William, who is second in line to the throne. This means that Middleton will be a queen day. He also has three incredibly adorable and well-behaved children: Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3 and Prince Louis, less than 1.
However, the woman who seems to have everything together, is not the super mother who likes to believe that a real mother would be. Kate Middleton has been quite open about her struggles as
Kate Middleton and Prince William founded 'Heads Together'
A big step on the road to improving the lives of parents is breaking the stigma associated with mental health disorders. This includes postpartum depression and less common postpartum anxiety. To this end, Kate Middleton and her husband lead an association called Heads together.
The organization aims to "address mental health problems
Kate Middleton's honesty about motherhood.
Many women think that being brave means hiding the truth about the hardest parts of parenting, specifically, the struggle to be a mother. Society sets such high standards in modern mothers to be strong and resilient in the face of obvious obstacles. However, Kate Middleton believes that brave means being honest so others can understand that they are not alone.
Kate Middleton has said that motherhood "is sometimes lonely and you feel quite isolated, but in reality many other mothers are going through exactly what you are going through."
In another moment, the Duchess said this about motherhood: "It's so difficult, you get a lot of support with the baby as a mother, especially in the first days, but after the age of one year, it disappears."
Kate Middleton is promoting a new service called FamilyLine
Middleton is not only honest about her struggles, but openly supports organizations that will help make it easier. He was recently present at the launch of a new service called FamilyLine (by Family Action Charity), which offers telephone assistance to parents who need it. Parents can call to talk about their mental health problems, relationships, physical health or anything else they may need help with.
This service could be revolutionary, since it eliminates to a certain extent the "solitary" factor of raising children. With someone that parents can call at any time, they no longer have to suffer for their problems alone and without support. This is a cause for which Kate Middleton has been passionate even before having her own children.
Middleton is a good role model.
In addition to her charitable work and honesty, Kate Middleton is improving the world for parents around the world by offering a great role model for people to follow. Despite their own struggles as a mother, the three Middleton children behave well and obviously are loved.
Although many real mothers rely heavily on their nannies, Middleton makes an effort to be as practical as his title allows. When she is not working, Kate Middleton spends her free time with her children, just like any other mother in the whole world.
She has also proven to be kind, loving and respectful as a mother. Middleton can often be seen crouched when talking to his children (or any of them), which is a sign of maximum respect. Why? By crouching down to their level, children know they are being heard, and as such, their thoughts and questions are also important.
